File types and file size
There are three different types of files included in a website: image files, audio files and finally video and animation files. Each of these file types are incremental towards the performance of a website.
There is a wide variety of image types each serving different purposes, for example; the dot gif is able to hold moving pictures as well as see-through blocks. However the quality is not as high as a jpg due to the limited amount of colour available in the format. A large gif file will affect the performance of a website as the frame rate will drop until fully loaded. A jpg is similar to a gif in that it will show images. However these images are still but can be of a higher quality. A large jpg file will take longer to download from a website causing the image to scroll from top to bottom as it appears on the screen. A bitmap file is an image type that is used specifically to store digital images. A large bitmap file will also take some time to download causing another great affect to the performance of a website.
